The Christmas tree is decorated, the cookies are frosted, church-goers are bundling up to head to services, children are sledding down the hills, snowmen stand proudly in front yards, icicles cling to the bulls’ whiskers, presents are tightly wrapped with shiny paper and bows, carolers are singing their favorite tunes, and the prime rib is in the oven is sending a warm aroma around the house. It’s truly the most wonderful time of the year, and, from all of us at BEEF, we wish you a very merry Christmas!
Yesterday, I asked all of you what your favorite cut of beef was and how you liked it prepared. My mouth was watering as I read the many ways you enjoy tasty, delicious beef. Forget the honey-ham! Move over turkey! Beef should be at the center of the dinner plate this Christmas! It's quite evident you all enjoy beef as much as I do. Readers’ favorite beef cuts included: Kansas City strip, ribeye, top round roast, tri-tip, filet mignon, porterhouse, brisket, prime rib, New York strip and sirloin. To put a new spin on these old favorites, I encourage you to look at the readers' comments  from yesterday. You cowboys sure know how to make a steak!
From the many entries posted yesterday, I randomly selected two winners to receive a set of cowboy-themed notecards, perfect for sending thank-you notes for the Christmas presents you will receive this weekend! Congratulations to Andrea Mann and Wendell Davis.
Andrea Mann likes, "Prime Rib that still “moos” with hot horseradish."
Davis enjoys, "A filet mignon, and rare."
